David Morrell’s CREEPERS was a publishing event: a powerful, edgy, dark thriller by a master of the genre. A New York Times bestseller, it won the prestigious Bram Stoker award and earned numerous critical raves. SCAVENGER, Morrell’s latest novel, takes us in a harrowing new direction-a desperate high-tech scavenger hunt for a 100-year-old time capsule. Morrell’s trademark action sequences are embedded with fascinating historical clues that make SCAVENGER a thrill-a-minute page-turner as well as a mesmerizing literary experience.

Frank Balenger, the resolute but damaged hero of David Morrell's acclaimed Creepers, now finds himself trapped in a nightmarish game of fear and death.

To save himself and the woman he loves, he must play by the rules of a god-like Game Master with an obsession for unearthing the past. The result is a surreal palimpsest, one that contains the secret of survival for Balenger and a handful of unwilling players who race against the game's clock to solve the puzzle of the time capsule, only to discover that time is the true scavenger.

I purchased SCAVENGER because I enjoyed its predecessor CREEPERS. The premise of that novel put two of the central characters of SCAVENGER in a New York Hotel about to be demolished on what amounts to an anthropological mission that turns dangerous to all and fatal to some. SCAVENGER uses the characters but ends up in both more familiar and less interesting territory. One of the two is abducted along with several other folks who have survived peril of multiple kinds. Someone is threatening their lives in a madman's game against great odds. The remaining CREEPERS character figures out enough of what's happening to ride to the rescue. Thus we have the crazy bad guy with all-but unlimited resources menacing until help arrives. I will confess that the second half of the novel, if one makes it that far, picks up momentum and satisfies. Still, from a writer of Mr. Morrell's long experience and proven abilities, SCAVENGER rates about a C.

I first read Creepers while on vacation in San Diego. It was a fascinating story. I have since read it twice more. Then I discovered Scavenger and have read it twice so far. Another engaging and fascinating story from a very good author. Morrell's writing keeps you enthralled throughout with twists and turns in the story. Riveting!
I have become a dedicated fan of his!

It was a good read. I liked it because I'm a Morrell fan. It was fast paced and Iseemed to finish it too fast or something. I felt like 'is this it?' whenI got to the end. I would recommend it to true Morrell fans. I would like to see if their reaction was the same as mine at the end.

This was a pretty exciting book!

Good story that kept me totally captivated, but the ending disappointed me. Some of the Morrell books have the author telling where the idea of the book came from, not this time when I really needed it

I chose this rating because it was well written and kept you guessing as to where the story would lead you. I disliked the ending. The ending was uneventful. I have read other books by David Morrell and enjoy his writing because you're always wondering what going to happen in the next chapter. Also, his characters are not complicated and you don't have any problem following the characters and the story line.
